See notes 7-933–35 below. The interrogatories were presumably prepared during the pendency of the Admiralty proceeding and were administered to at least one witness some time during 1769. See note 3359 below. In the Suffolk files are two fragments in the hand of James Otis, containing questions to be put to various witnesses. These are probably questions submitted by Otis to whoever was taking depositions in the case, to be asked of the deponent. They are set out in note 3965 below.
